DOVER, TN (WSMV) -

The mother of a 17-year-old Stewart County teen is accused in her death, along with two other men, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

According to TBI officials, Kristin Irizarry, 17, was found dead at 305 Conger St. in Cumberland City on Oct. 14, 2012.

An autopsy revealed the teen died from acute multiple drug intoxication, including ethanol and oxymorphone, a pain reliever known under the brand name Opana.

TBI officials said Irizarry had no previous prescription drug history.

Investigators learned that the night before the teen's death, her mother, Nicole Irizarry, 41, of Dover, gave her daughter oxymorphone to sell.

TBI officials said that night Kristen Irizarry, along with Darius Skelton, 20, and Dayzon Skelton, 19, both of Cumberland City, and another juvenile went to a party where alcohol was served, and attempted to sell Nicole Irizarry's pills. During that party, investigators said Kristin Irizarry ingested some of the pills.

The group returned to Dayzon Skelton's home, TBI officials said. The next morning Kristin Irizarry was found dead and 911 was called.

Nicole Irizarry was indicted on charges of second-degree murder, child neglect, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a child and one count of conspiracy to sell a scheduled drug.

Dayzon and Darius Skelton were each indicted on one count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a child, one count of conspiracy to sell a scheduled drug and one county of criminally negligent homicide.

Nicole Irizarry is currently in the Henry County Jail on $50,000, according to the TBI.

The Skeltons were booked into the Stewart County Jail on $25,000 bond each.

The 23rd Judicial District attorney general requested the TBI investigate Kristin Irizarry's death along with the Cumberland City Police Department.
